End of a chapter

Dear friends,

As you know, the Silverwood units had been concepted as a self sufficient-not for much profit, collective and creative venture.
Sooo, as The Silverwood Ladies and their friends are all moving on to different projects, we are in the process of closing down our Afflecks pop up unit.
Anne-Laure is moving to London, Victoria is going travelling in South America, Helen will be focusing on her alteration business, Tom is dedicating his time to his graduation project before going cycling in the US, Michael is more busy than ever, making great comics, teaching himself new softwares, not sleeping and eating toasts.

More than anything, we want to thank you all for your interest and support!
It has been such an amazing creative adventure! We went a bit crazy with the building and the making, but all for the best as we learnt a hell of a lot through all our experimentations.
We will for sure keep you posted about our next projects!!!

Take care your all and lots of love
The Silverwood Ladies & Their Friends

Yeah! Hannah Raeside is a Silverwood Lady!

Since the opening of the new Silverwood boutique in february, Hannah Raeside's very cool products have been a proper hit!
To celebrate and take it one step further, we decided to dedicate a full corner of the shop to Raeside's quirky handmade jumpers, bags, earrings, brooches, purses, cushions and cards!
Hannah and her sewing machine will also now be seen in the shop once a week, making more desirable crafty items just for you.
It is just starting and the girl will go far so come to check out her growing collection!

Yesterday an amazing stock of original 80's Underground shoes arrived in the shop! All pairs are new and in the original box.
If you like the brand, you might know that some of the 80's designs are really hard to find as they are not produced anymore.
Our prices start at £35 so if this is your kind of style, come quickly gents ;)
